Ape, not sure who you pointed the wage increase at, but I was calling it a joke if you aimed that at me, as I said they just pass it to the consumer
or outsource, then again they hire illegals too.
ok Wikipedia does not have it, funny what they do have:
OK GET A DICTIONARY THEN AND LOOK UP REPUBLICAN!
Liberals are for FREEDOM, and INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS, dems are for the FREEDOM part, sort of. What we have now are NOT liberals, what we have now are
NOT democrats. What we have now IS fascists and elitists.
Do not run around calling people dirty liberals or dems, because the "leaders" and "government officials" are NOT liberals or democrats by
the definitions given. They are the direct ENEMY OF liberals and democrats.
Thus I am a liberal, democrat, bit of a dictator on some subjects, humanitarian, and more, lets just put it this way: no one word can sum up what
I believe in when you get down too it. I like the liberal ideals of individual freedom and liberty, I like the democrat way of freedom, I like the
humanitarian stance because that is the basis of my being: Honor, morality, and ethics. However I by no means support passing the problems to the
people, on problems like INCOME, I say and HAVE said: BRING BACK THE FACTORIES! We need EXPORTS not IMPORTS. Exports give people jobs and higher
incomes, IMPORTS take jobs away and money as well. WHY ON EARTH do we make SHOES in CHINA? We can make shoes right here! WHY MAKE UNDERWARE IN INDIA
USING CHILD AND SLAVE LABOR?! THAT IS NOT MORAL OR ETHICAL LET ALONE HUMANITARIAN! THAT JUST MAKES THE WORLD MORE HOSTILE TO US! LETS MAKE SHOES HERE!
Want konbu (Japanese Kelp)? Buy it from Japan, that is one of the things we cannot do, however if we CAN do it, THEN LETS DO IT! This nation was
having a "golden age" when factories were going full steam, massive exports and few imports, the world looked up to us because we had jobs for
whoever wanted them. All we need now is to make the factories cleaner by using the new technology out there, thus less pollution, and then start
RECYCLING WHAT WE USE as we did during WW2 and VOILA! We have a stronger economy.
Any corporation that outsources should have the BEJESUS taxed out of them, then make it illegal to pass that price to the consumer, this way our
products stand a chance, not the cheaper than dirt junk from China.
Also how many of you remember going to a flee market and seeing products made during the cold war in the USA, still works, then someone else
across the compound is selling the same thing made in China, 1 year old, and is worthless? Things are no longer made to last, they are made to be
replaced quickly, profit or quality. I say QUALITY over PROFIT.
Anyway, do not put the liberals or democrats down, they are not liberals or democrats when you read the definitions.
Hillary as you said is only taking on parties and "liberal or democrat" to get votes, and Richardson does the same.
Edit: corrected one word.
Edit: added 1 sentence
